Exciting to find out that the Metropolitan Museum of Art revamped their website making it more interactive. (To be honest I haven’t been on the old website so I’m not sure how much it has changed but from the article from the nytimes it said it had not been changed in ten years so I can imagine it has to have had quite a few changes.) So now the website lets you look at the floor plan, an interactive map, many of the collections, art history, and this awesome connections section which finds specific people and they give a short talk and it goes through pictures or paintings as they are talking. It is very impressive. They have about 60 of these. An example is Jean Sorabella talking about motherhood. http://www.metmuseum.org/connections/motherhood/#/Feature/

Everything is moving towards the digital age! It’s it exciting to know that our generation is going to have a huge part in it?!
